Alameda County District Attorney Pamela Price Announces Guilty Verdict in Domestic Violence Case
Oakland – The Office of Alameda County District Attorney Pamela Price announces a jury verdict in a domestic violence case against Reynaldo Garibay. The case tried by Deputy District Attorney Benjamin Sinoff was a hard-fought and difficult case involving six separate incidents of domestic violence. The victim was terrorized in her home by Defendant Garibay after she ended their relationship in early 2023.
A jury found Defendant Garibay guilty on all seven charge counts alleged, including making criminal threats, exhibiting a deadly weapon, and vandalism.
Defendant Garibay was sentenced on November 20, 2023, to a term of three years court probation and 180 days custody in the Santa Rita County Jail. He was directed to complete a 52 week Batterers Intervention Program and comply with the terms and conditions under a 3-year Criminal Protective/Stay-Away Order.
“This was a very difficult case to prosecute, and the swift and successful outcome is a testament to the victim-focused training and teamwork of our Domestic Violence Misdemeanor Prosecution Unit and its dedicated advocates under the leadership of Senior Assistant District Attorney Evanthia Pappas,” said Alameda County District Attorney Pamela Price. “This case sends a message that my office is committed to protecting vulnerable members of our society and we are relentless when it comes to holding defendants accountable.”
